    Intro (w/main strum): / Am - - - / G - - - / F - - - / G - - - /


    (one strum per chord):

    Am                    F    

       Your subtleties, they strangle me

    Dm                E    

         I can't explain myself at all.

    Am                          F    

         And all that wants, And all that needs

    Dm               E    

       All I don't want to need at all.


    Pre-Chorus (resume main strum):

    F (2)

       The walls start breathing, my mind's

         C (2)

    unweaving, maybe it's best you leave me

        F                      Am/E    

    alone.  A weight is lifted on this

    Dm (2)

    evening.  I give the final blow.


    Chorus 1:

               C                       F    

    When darkness turns to light,

                       Am              G    

    It ends tonight, it ends tonight.


    (w/distortion strum):

    Am                  F    

         A falling star, at least I fall alone

    Dm                 E    

          I can't explain what you can't explain

    Am                          F    

         You're finding things that you didn't know

    Dm              E    

        I look at you with such disdain




    Chorus 2:

               C                       F    

    When darkness turns to light,

                       Am              G    

    It ends tonight, it ends tonight.

               C                       F    

    Just a little insight will make this right

                         Am                G    

    It's too late to fight, It ends tonight,


    It ends tonight.





    Now I'm on my own side

    D/F#                F    

    It's better than being on your side

    Am      G/B                    

    It's my fault when you're blind,

    D/F#                 F    

    It's better that I see it through your eyes

    Am/E           F                    Dm

    All these thoughts locked inside


    Now you're the first to know


    Chorus x2


    End on Am
